are you sure you have the servos plugged into the the proper rx channel ? does the swash correspond to the proper input from the tx ? in otherwards when standing behind the heli give right cyclic, the swash should tilt to the right. left cyclic, swash tilts to the left. forward cyclic, swash tilts forward. backward cyclic, swash tilts back. how is the tx setup at the moment ?

shut up and fly

when the heli starts to slide try to give a little left or right cyclic. so when you spool up if the heli starts to slide to the left, then apply little right cyclic to correct it. its a small heli so it may want to drift alittle. as your correcting the slide issue appy more power to get it to lift

shut up and fly

It is never going to rise straight up.

It will, if trimmed for a hands-off hover out of ground effect, slide to the left and backards.

This is normal for most machines.

If you can, get someone who is familiar with it to trim it out for you. These fly very well, but are pretty sensitive (i.e. very quick).

Make sure you use training gear and take it slow.

Venom has excellent customer support, so you might contact them as well.

PLT is pitch limit trim-the overall range of the collective. PZT is the Pitch Zero Trim, this mixes the collective with the throttle. If DIP switch #8 on the back of the Transmitter is locked, neither of these two knobs will have any effect. Once you unlock it, you will lose the factory settings.

You want the Idle up switch in "Normal Mode". The other switch does nothing.

I have about 100 flights on one of these little machines. Again, they fly well, but are very sensitive.

Thanks very much Rak, that helps alot, when i bought it i crased it 3 times with training gear and i was fresterated, so i took it to the hobby shop.... and we sent it to venom, and they repaired it and they said there was 2 pins missing from the rotor head, witch was causing it to loose tracking at high RPM. It was factor problem, Now im just trying to get it adjusted so i can fly it, now, im a beginner and should i have the #8 switch locked untill i get beter or what do you sudgust?

Thanks

Matt

Matt,

From what I have seen, when someone sends an entire machine back to Venom for diagnosis, they test fly it and trim it. You will have to verify this with them.

If they did do this, I would keep switch #8 locked and leave their settings.
